Losing It (Losing It #1) by Cora Carmack
Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if that weren’t embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She’d left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier.Paperback, 288 pages

Bliss Edwards is on her last semester of college and she's the only one that still has the V-card status, determine to change that she goes out to the bars.
Brushing up on Shakespeare Garrick didn't think he would attract girls that way but Bliss Edwards caught his eyes.
Almost having an one night stand meant everything for Bliss, but she couldn't bring herself to do it so she tells Garrick to leave and that would be the end of it.
But then both Garrick and Bliss learn something about each other that pushes the professional boundary.
Can they keep their true relationship a secret from other colleagues or will something threaten to them and be exposed?
I give this an PURRFECT PURRFEST! I absolutely adore/love Garrick and Bliss, I really love Cora's writing because it feels so authentic with these characters.
MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
First off let me just go PURRRRR on this book! I read it on my way back home from a trip, it was an 10 hour drive and I ended up reading the whole book between 2-4 hours! I DEVOURED Losing It, Cora Carmack knows how to write young adults that are venturing out looking for a little hook up or maybe a little relationship.
Also WHY can't Cora create a real life Garrick and send him to me?!?! I would die to date someone with an sexy accent.
Bliss Edwards is in her final semester and she still hadn't gotten action yet, her own mother pester her about dating and getting out there. Well with it being Bliss's last semester at her Texas college she thought maybe, just maybe she might get lucky.
Well she got lucky alright . . . Meet Garrick Taylor the sexy hot British guy who was reading Shakespeare in a bar! Now I don't care about Shakespeare but I love Bliss's reaction.
Boom they share a common love/hate for Shakespeare, meanwhile Bliss's overbearing virginity status got her thinking crazy. But crazy works for both of them . . . however Bliss can't seem to stop rambling! I mean Garrick already finds you sexy so why are you letting your status ruin it?
AND that was the END of Seeing Garrick . . . or so I thought but when he does make a comeback into Bliss's life BUT here's the KICKER, he's her teacher for one of her class! AWKWARD! However when trying to be professional and keeping their little relationship under wraps, Bliss's friends are trying to get her out and about meeting guys right in front of him. But what's worst was that Bliss friend Cade starts acting very touchy touchy.
I had an sense that Cade was into Bliss in the beginning but why hadn't he build up the courage to asks her out BEFORE she met Garrick. He even started acting boyfriendish around Bliss although that status quo was not even in existence for Bliss.
Both Bliss and Garrick can't control the insane chemistry they have for one another but because of the professional level that they really can't cross that boundary but they do it anyway in secretly. They risked everything pretty much to be together and then they get into a huge argument in front of Cade who realizes the truth about the two of them.
In the end I love the end FYI, I even love the epilogue that takes place 6 months later and Garrick being head over heels for Bliss. I really hope that Cora will do something to tied up where everyone stands, and after reading Garrick and Bliss's story I had two crazy fan-fic Idea for Garrick and Bliss! Like it's truly is perfect so hopefully I will be able to share that or submit that to the RT Fan-Fic contest for 2016
